Knowing no more details, I’d say it’s probably coincidental to the PTO timing.

Oh, so they quit? I read that as they were rolled off by the project team.

As companies scale, they lose identity. I think that is happening to Deloitte too. There is distribution in terms of capability and now the middle of distribution is way too big.

It is same attitude on my project, 20% people doing 80% of work, others are just making noise and complaining all the time.
